BIN (holotype): BOLD:ACF3549.

Diagnosis

Callipia wojtusiaki septentrionalis   subsp. nov   . can reliably be separated from the nominate form by the geographical distribution and DNA barcoding only. The uncus of C. milleri sp. nov. tends to be narrower than in the more spatula-shaped uncus of C. wojtusiaki   sp. nov. COI-barcode: the minimum observed distance to the nominate species is 0.8%, and the minimum observed distance to C.milleri   sp. nov. is 1.0%.

Etymology

This subspecies of C. wojtusiaki   sp. nov. is distributed in the northern part of the species’ range and thus named septentrionalis from Latin, meaning ‘northern’.
